PREFACE 

In preparing the first edition of the Historical Register of Officers of the Con 
tinental Army, which was published in 1893, the compiler examined all the records 
then available in the several executive departments in Washington and supple 
mented the data obtained from this source by such as could be gathered from 
documents published by the Government and also those printed by States and 
individuals. 

An Act of Congress of July 27, 1892, provided for the transfer to the War De 
partment for preservation and indexing of the revolutionary records in the Treas 
ury and Interior Departments, and an Act of March 2, 1913, directed the Secre 
tary of War to collect or copy "the scattered military records of the Revolutionary 
War," including those of State troops, etc. Under those acts many revolu 
tionary records were transferred to the War Department. Others not in the 
possession of the Government were loaned to the Department to be copied and 
returned. As a result of this legislation, the Government has now a fair collec 
tion of the Army records of the Revolutionary War. 

This collection is, however, far from complete. All official records filed in the 
War Department when it was burned November 8, 1800, were then destroyed. 
Many other records or documents have been lost or destroyed through various 
causes and still others have become, through lack of care, so torn and mutilated 
as to be of little or no value for reference. Very few rolls or other records per 
taining to the troops of Georgia and the two Carolinas have been found, most of 
them having probably been captured or destroyed by the enemy during the al 
most continuous fighting in those States. 

A good many records are in possession of historical or other societies, libraries, 
and individuals and have not been sent to the War Department to be copied. 
For these reasons a complete list of the names of all the participants in that 
glorious struggle for our independence, either of officers, or of soldiers who shoul 
dered the musket, can never be compiled. 

There are in existence many records pertaining to the Militia during the War. 
These are fragmentary, and an examination of such of them as could be found 
shows that they consist principally of pay accounts for service for short periods 
of from two days to three months, but unfortunately the dates, or even the years 
in which the service was rendered, are rarely shown. 

The compiler was allowed access to all the records on file in the War Depart 
ment bearing on the Revolutionary War, and this enabled him not only to cor 
rect and more fully complete the data contained in the former volume, but to 
add the names of several thousand officers with a more or less complete record 
of their services. 

The records given in this volume are not strictly official, for much of the data 
has not been obtained from official records, but in order to complete as far as 



6 PREFACE; 

possible the service of each officer, other sources of reliable information have been 
consulted and the data obtained therefrom included. (Many officers of the Militia 
and State troops who were mentioned by name in reports of battles, campaigns, 
etc., or of whom a list was furnished at the time, appear in this volume. The 
rank such officers held at the time mentioned only is stated, as many no doubt 
attained subsequently a higher grade.) 

(The compiler has devoted much time and labor to the preparation of this 
work, in the examination of records of various sorts such as returns, rolls, orderly 
books, pay accounts, etc., many of which are not in the possession of the Govern 
ment, but have been loaned to him by societies and individuals.) 

This NEW EDITION contains the records of 14,000 Officers, there being 6,000 
NEW names not recorded in the former edition, and of the 8,000 Officers men 
tioned in the old edition, a great many records have been revised, augmented and 
completed.

Field Officers 

OF 

REGIMENTS OF THE CONTINENTAL LINE 



Note. The appointment of the first and termination of service of the last 
field officer of each regiment or battalion, as a general rule, indicates the term of 
service of each organization. While many of the regiments of the Continental 
Line bore a numerical designation, they were, however, generally known and 
designated in orders and correspondence by the names of their respective colonels 
or commanders. The term battalion, instead of regiment, appears to have been 
the general designation. 

The dates here given are not in all cases dates of rank, but only the periods 
they belonged to the battalion ; for date of rank and continuity of service see 
alphabetical list. 

It will be observed that in many cases the successive order is somewhat irregu 
lar, which is owing to many causes, viz: absence of complete records; the several 
rearrangements made by law: by the authority of the commanding generals of the 
different departments, and by the appointment or promotion in the place of those 
absent on detached duty, sick, prisoners of war, etc., and who on return of such 
absence were returned to their former, or assigned to other, regiments. 

In addition to the list of regiments or battalions herewith there were others 
belonging to the Continental Line the Pulaski Legion, Lee s battalion of Light 
Dragoons, Armand s Partisan Corps, Corps of Engineers, Sappers and Miners, and 
Rangers, but only few rolls or lists of these are on file, not sufficient to make an 
approximately correct roster of field officers, hence they are omitted ; such names, 
however, as were found of these organizations appear in the alphabetical list.
